Exchange Server 2010 Setup cannot continue installing the Exchange Management Tools because the target computer is not running Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2), Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2), or a later version.

Exchange 2010 Setup requires that the computer that is used for the Exchange Management Tools be running Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2, or a later version.

To resolve this issue, do the following:

  • Install the Exchange 2010 Management Tools on a computer that is running Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2, or a later version.

  • Upgrade the computer where you want to run the Exchange 2010 Management Tools to Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 SP2, or a later version.

noteNote:
If you want to install Exchange 2007 Management Tools and Exchange 2010 Management Tools on the same computer, you must install Exchange 2007 Management Tools first and then install Exchange 2010 Management Tools.
